TAST 2012 , WEEK 31, ALGERIAN EYELET STITCH !

Hello to you all! This week the stitch is Algerian eye stitch and what a ball I have had with this one !
I have to say that this has got to be a favourite of mine.......It inspires me greatly and all sorts of creative meanderings go on in my mind !! I absolutely love what I have achieved this week and definately would
love to do another larger version of this one and hang it up somewhere special !!!
These are the threads that I have used for this mandala................

CARON WILD FLOWERS
COTON A BRODER 16
DMC VARIATIONS
JENNIFER GAIL THREADS
I have used 28 count Evenweave fabric and many hours of hard labour, but I am sure it was all worth it !!
Sharon.......You have given me so much creativity..........I thank you !
I also thank all my followers for supporting me on this creative journey.......I hope my work inspires you to




pick up a needle and thread !!! have an awesome weekend.........Love to you all !!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  3. Chris, what can I say, stunning! The variations in both colours, thread and stitching combine for another beauty. You've mentioned some threads I'm not familiar with - coton a broder and jennifer gail so am off to check these out. Do you recall what colours of the wildflowers you used - the combinations are so wonderful. Your mandalas are truly inspiring. Enjoy your weekend.

  6. Most beautiful, the colours, stitching and beads just go so well with the fabric, it is becoming so hard to tell you how beautiful your work is. It has become very challenging each week not to say just the same, how beautiful is beautiful?? xx
